Paris, France - A biopic about four-times Formula 1 world champion Alain Prost will be shot in 2017, French film producers said on Tuesday.
The film, titled "Prost", will follow the 61-year-old's life "from childhood to his first title, and his return (from a sabbatical) in 1993 and the legendary duel with Brazilian Aryton Senna," the Labyrinthe film studios said in a statement.
Prost courted plenty of controversy in his career, from his many feuds with Senna while the two where together at McLaren, to being fired by Ferrari in 1992 for publicly criticising the car and team.
